I'm very surprised that few others have picked up on this thread.....or should I say that probably the reason few having picked up on this thread is the very same reason for the request being raised in the first place!!!!!!
As I have already commented, this forum is an absolute mine of factual information that not only should be in a manual, but an enormous amount of advice, hints and tips that are essential to anyone starting up using Simplify3D. The only problem being that with the format and organisation of a forum, actually finding that very useful piece of information is very tedious and difficult. In fact, I've previously said that once a thread goes onto page two, then it might as well be deleted....as almost nobody looks that far!!!! Some will say "Do a search." , but the forum search facility is very, very basic, and its impossible to find specific threads easily.
Enter the concept of a WIKI. Years ago when WIKIs started to appear, I was of the opinion they were not that useful. But my opinion has changed...and I believe that what this forum....and Simplify3D....really needs is a WIKI set up so that all of the useful facts and information can be steadily and slowly transferred into a much more useable reference database.
To put together a WIKI, not only does there need to be a desire by Simplify3D to provide the framework , etc for the WIKI to exist, there needs to be a small core team of Simplify3D staff and users to design the starting menu structure and then to start transferring a starter amount of data over before letting the WIKI loose on the user base.
I would welcome the thoughts of others....and even those of Simplify3D staff & management, should someone be reading this section of the forum.......
